Justin Vernon and Volcano Choir play Chicago’s Metro
Four years after Justin Vernon’s side band released its debut, Volcano Choir is touring a second album, Repave. Fans of Bon Iver should appreciate Volcano Choir’s music. It’s Vernon backed by a band that creates a big, full sound compared with the more intimate folkiness of Bon Iver. The downside is Volcano Choir isn’t quite as interesting as Vernon’s better-known project.
Still, this looks to be a good show. Volcano Choir plays Metro Friday night. Volcano Choir is actually Vernon’s second side project of the year. In April, he released Grownass Man as the Shouting Matches, a trio that plays more of a country blend.
